Tell your story

Back to the Crazy Birds here, keeping my promise to use them as they're already coloured, die cut and ready to go. This is the card I made:
I used:

- 6" x 6" cream card blank

- black card as the first layer, then topped that with a trimmed down piece of DP from MME's 'Blush' paper pad with the caged bird as part of the design - using Collall All Purpose glue

- stamped the sentiments using a Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink pad and the Tim Holtz 'Simple Sayings' set, snipped them apart and ran a black Whispers marker round the edges. I picked the words 'cos I think the Crazy Bird is looking longingly at the birdie in the cage with a view to adding a new friend to his circle :)

- fiddled around working out where things should go before then gluing them in place using Collall glue

- I added Glossy Accents to the eye after this photo was taken but saw little point in retaking another shot :)

I wonder if the caged birdie will 'sing like a canary' and spill the beans!

  18. The crazy birds are great fun, didn't realise you could get them ready to go. I'm very tempted by the stamps but have resisted so far!!
